Creating a successful environment that offers safety, comfort, and friendship for people with Alzheimer's disease is our purpose! Dr. Michael Carrick, our founder, had personal experience with Alzheimer's and set out to create a residence where individuals with dementia and their families would find an exceptional amount of support. We have professional expertise to help alleviate the guilt, anger, and frustration that often goes along with Alzheimer's caregiving. We understand the fear, anxiety, and confusion a person with Alzheimer's disease often experiences. We offer regular family support groups and free monthly Alzheimer's education seminars.

We understand that each of our residents is an individual with unique needs and experiences. At Somerford Place, our goal is to promote this individuality and maximize independence. We focus on what residents can do, not on what they cannot! This requires a detailed understanding of each resident's background: their life experiences; their interests; what they still enjoy; when to offer extra help; and what makes them smile. Our individual service plans cater to the individual needs of the residents.

Somerford Place is the result of extensive research into the needs of people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia; research into their desire for safety, comfort and a sense of belonging; and investigation into the most progressive caregiving techniques available. Experts in Alzheimer's disease, specialists in designing programs and environments for people with dementia, and caregivers came together to create Somerford Place. Together, we have developed a very special place. A place where our only focus is helping seniors with memory loss and their families and friends.

Somerford Place is a dream come true for persons with dementia and their families. Until there's a cure, thankfully, there's Somerford Place!

    They just really have a great staff of nurses and caregivers. The main thing is they let my mom set her own schedule and do what she wants. It is secure and the caregivers do not make her do anything. And they...

  • A good choice

    We looked at a number of locations before choosing Somerford Place. Somerford offered a much more attractive environment for mom to live, with a lot of outdoor spaces and activities. The layout of the facility...
